Re: Proposal to manage a replica of your mailbox in Odoo

Thanks Nhomar and Jared,

Perhaps incorporating filters in the Incoming Server configuration would be interesting. For example, do not process or delete mails received from certain email address or domain...

I can imagine, for example, for my own email account I would indicate a filter to stop receiving into Odoo mails from "" (because it may not be a source that I need to specifically manage in Odoo).

Another interesting idea is that each new email address received should create a new contact. That way, you can ensure that you can track, from the contact database, all the associated mails.

I'm updating the specs accordingly.

Agreed on the performance aspects, one good thing about the outlined approach would be that it is opt-in per user.

A lot of users, e.g. sales and support agents, could really use something like this.
A lot of users, pretty much everyone else, would find this duplication unnecessary and burdensome to the system and their own email management goals (infinite unread messages will just hide ACTUAL unread messages).

It would be interesting to see an alternative where you never make an inbox for users, let Odoo collect them through catchall and send them into the user's messages, and then allow POP or IMAP access to Odoo's Discuss module itself. (so that they can have a 'regular' mail client read their Odoo messages)

Again, that may be ideal for some users (and it might save a bit on per-user email fees like Google Apps).

We're targeting for 7.0, 8.0 and in a near future 9.0.

We are testing with good results so far.

AFAICR Eric from elico did something sround that, be in touch with him.

Excellent BT but take care manage a big volume of emails in the ERP itself is pretty dangerous in terms of performance.
